About The Event
Dead Sea Guardians
The Dead Sea, shared by Israelis, Jordanians and Palestinians - is a unique salt-lake, known for its exceptional geographical, biological, and historical value.
It is also the lowest place on earth and one of the wonders of the world. Tragically, the Dead Sea is drying due to overconsumption and poor water management.
Three historic enemies join forces on a heroic journey to stop this catastrophe and save the Dead Sea from disappearing.
